Pope prays for peace on Easter


Pope Francis prayed for peace in Ukraine and Syria, and for an end to militant attacks in Nigeria as he celebrated Easter.

More than 150,000 people gathered in Saint Peter's Square as the pontiff led mass from an altar set up on the steps of Saint Peter's Basilica.

Pope Francis noted that the Catholic Church's celebration of Easter this year coincides with that of orthodox churches, which have many followers in Ukraine.
